Lehtinen Out With Abdominal Strain

via the AP,

Stars right wing Jere Lehtinen will be out indefinitely with an abdominal strain, but might not need surgery as the team originally thought, coach Dave Tippett said after Friday night’s 3-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Earlier on Friday night, the club said Lehtinen would undergo surgery on Monday, but Tippett said that was “premature.”

“We’ll continue to look at it,” Tippett said. “We’ll do some tests and see how it reacts over the next few days.”
